I thought this video was quite accurate.

First off, yes I’m Canadian, so this is simply commentary as an outsider looking in.

I’ve never been a fan of Donald Trump. That style of loud egotism doesn’t seem to do anything for me and I can’t really imagine him being anything more than self serving in his approach to governance. Meaning, likely bad for the little guy. Probably bad for the middle class. The elite classes, they’ll benefit. The always do.

Could I be wrong? Absolutely.

My biggest argument with political campaigns is there lack of content. Lack of factual information. Like, when they say “I will put in place strong environmental policies“.. give us specific examples please. Enough with the lip service and keyword phrases that are meant to make us all feel warm and fuzzy.

Now when it comes to all this ridicule of Donald Trump. It’s the same deal.

Yeah, Trump is a pretty proud guy, he’s loud, he’ll say things that get reactions out of people…. comedians seem to love poking fun at his hair.

But at the end of the day, all this is simply entertainment. There is little serious political discussion that I see. To belittle this guy is simply a media outlet jacking ratings and making more $$.

As they mention in the video, Trump’s message hits home with many and the belittling/ridiculing of candidates and politicians from the Left wing and from the Right wing media outlets only serves the purposeĀ of those media empires. It does not enhance democracy.

Donald Trump and Liberal Media: The Joke’s On You

    Agreed. Supposedly serious media outlets are reduced to tabloid-worthy “news”. The illiberal liberal is clearly the reigning ethos. I don’t see how this is any different from hardliner conservatives.
